The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant!
The San Francisco Giants sure gave the St. Louis Cardinals a taste of their own medicine didn’t they? The comeback kids of the last two post-seasons were up 3-games-to-1 before dropping three straight ending their bid at a second consecutive National League and ultimately World Series Championship.
It is now the Giants who will move on to represent the NL for the second time in three seasons, taking on a well-rested Detroit Tigers team more than happy to eliminate their second Bay Area team in these 2012 MLB Playoffs.
Enough with the chit-chat, on to the phantom championship merchandise, as with the New York Yankees AL Champs post earlier this week unfortunately I do not have any championship t-shirts.
And as a bonus, some shots at some of the Detroit Tigers vs. St. Louis Cardinals 2012 World Series “matchup” merchandise:
And as a double bonus, some other once-possible 2012 World Series matchups:
You know, no matter which way it ended up from the ALCS and NLCS, that would have been a beautiful looking World Series, from a logo and uniform point-of-view no matter what. Giants-Yankees seems so yesteryear, would have been nice, you know, aesthetically.
